March is truly roaring in like a lion at Rodrock Development’s Arbor Woods, much to the delight of homebuyers and agents alike. Located at Canyon Drive and 125th Terrace, this Olathe community is bustling with new homes in various stages of construction, including four available for immediate occupancy.
“Some of our most trusted builders, including Darol Rodrock Homes, Chris George Custom Homes, and Prieb Homes, have done an incredible job readying homes for spring,” says community manager Debi Donner. “But savvy buyers aren’t waiting that long and are snatching up homes early in the season. Despite the early season rush, we are lucky to have eight fabulous homes that are 60 to 90 days from completion, so there’s still opportunities for homebuyers to find their dream home—and with all the styles and detailing they want!”
Darol Rodrock Homes offers two perennially popular options: the Marco IV, a reverse 1.5 story with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and the Bower, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
“Darol Rodrock Homes’ fantastic Marco reverse 1.5 includes a large Great Room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace that opens to the dining room,” Debi says. “Rich hardwoods accent the open, bright feel of the main level, while the planning area off the kitchen is ideal for active homeowners. The kitchen itself features a breakfast bar, under-cabinet lighting, soft-close drawers, and more. There are so many thoughtful upgrades in this home, and the master suite is sublime with a freestanding tub, spa-like shower, and his-and-her closets. The Marco provides the proverbial ‘big bang in a small package’!”
Never miss a local story.
And several of the Bower floor plans are shortly to be completed, featuring 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and fabulous, family-friendly kitchen, which overlooks the spacious Great Room and its striking fireplace centered between impressive built-ins.
“This home was clearly designed with busy families in mind,” says Debi. “The kitchen boasts a large center island, walk-in pantry, and a helpful command center with boot bench and cubbies and hooks for all the gear of an active family—and the second-floor laundry, with utility sink and cabinetry, is accessible to all the bedrooms.”
And two of Chris George Homes’ favorite Yorkshire IV plans are well underway and awaiting the discerning touches of a design-minded homebuyer. This 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home offers a fantastic kitchen and numerous options and upgrades. This home offers so much potential for effortless entertaining, from the formal dining room with dry bar to the covered deck and daylight lower level.
“The Yorkshire’s functional front-porch elevation draws you in, while the interior features grab your attention,” Debi adds. “A large kitchen, formal dining, and bonus office/craft room just off the kitchen are truly welcoming, while rear stairs add to the open feel, inviting you to the upper level’s functional layout.”
Rounding out these fantastic offerings is the Levi by Prieb Homes. This 2-story plan offers a fifth bedroom and three-quarter bath off a huge kitchen and a stunning floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. As well, the master suite has the most amazing king-size closets with built-in cubbies. The plan has been a strong seller, as buyers gravitate toward the open floor plan and fine finishes. Three of these homes are under construction and are only some 90 days from completion.
Also in its finishing stages is Prieb’s Brooklyn, which offers a spacious 2,500-plus square feet of finished living space, including a 2-story entry, formal dining room, breakfast nook, and kitchen that opens to the Great Room.
“Arbor Woods is picking up steam, and Chris George Homes and Darol Rodrock Homes are stoking the fire,” says Debi. “Offering several 2-story and reverse-1.5-story plans priced from $368,900 to $409,950, options are plenty for the discerning buyer looking for quality construction in an area bustling with activity. Excitingly, we’ve just opened a selection of new lots for those set on building.”
The community is ideally designed for families of every shape and size. Arbor Woods is adjacent to the award-winning Forest View Elementary School, which recently received the award for achieving outstanding results in school and student outcomes, by implementing “The Leader in Me” process. Mission Trail Middle School is right within sight, while the new Olathe West High School is close by, meaning Arbor Woods is a community that truly grows with families—from Kindergarten through high-school graduation.
